is an efficient capture method that can be used to
obtain reliable population estimates, length-weight
relationships, and age and growth on most streams.
Electrofishers tend to collect larger fish more
easily than smaller fish but variable control
electrical transformers allow adjustable control of
voltage, pulse, and electrical frequency thereby
reducing size selectivity. Electrofishing efficiency
can also be affected by stream conductivity,
temperature, depth, and clarity of water. Each
condition must be considered to ensure a reliable
population estimate. Electrofishing can be more
efficient than other methods of population estimates
such as seining and underwater observation.
Boulder-rubble substrate, turbidity, aquatic
vegetation, and undercut banks can bias other
population estimation methods.

aluminum field case for easy storage, traveling and
carrying that will house all parts for the
Model 2000 Electro-Fishing Unit
Boat Mounted Electro-Fisher - Model 2020
The Model 2020 is a boat mounted electro-fishing
unit that features a 2500 watt, 300 volt battery-operated power source. Specifications are the same
as the model 2000 but uses a larger 24V battery
source along with higher wattage and voltage output.

Electro-Shock Low Voltage Gloves
Made of natural rubber, these gloves are for use
on circuits of up to 1,000 volts and work well in
electro-fishing applications. Maximum use voltage in
accordance with ASTM specifications, 1000 volts. 11"
Size 10 Gloves
The fiberglass handle of this dip net insulates
from user shock! It also features an aluminum
bow construction which eliminates netting abuse from
rocks, sand, branches, etc. The nylon netting
is completely encased in the bow.
Dimensions: 16" x 16" bow with a 6'
fiberglass handle. Nylon net is 3/16" mesh x
605-091 Electro-Shock Dip
Fish Measuring Board
This high density polyethylene Wildco® Fish
Measuring Board provides fast and accurate fish
measurements. Its smooth surface and
east-to-read scales allow for minimal trauma to the
fish during data collection. The tempered
aluminum straight edge is set up for metric
measurements, but can easily be turned around for
English measurements. A tapered backstop helps
prevent fish from sliding off during measurement.
Available in 30" (75cm) and 24" (60 cm) sizes with
English and metric measurements. English scale
has .1" divisions. Metric scale has 1 mm
Board, 30" (75 cm) 7lbs.
